My prayer list is very long these days. Many friends and loved ones are going through some serious trials. I never for asecond think that my prayers fall on deaf ears. What a privlege to approach God on his throne with our problems and heartaches.

Yesterday was the big 4-0 for this gal. I thought I would be sad and feel old, but it was really an awesome day!! I also think having cancer in the family changes your perspectiveon birthdays , because they truly are something to celebrate!
The celebration started Wednesday after church when Mke took me on a date to the Log House. We had a great time just the two of us, chatting and talking wtihout interuptions from the kids.
Wednesday morning at 7 am David insisted that Mike take him to get me some flowers. God bless him because at 7:20 he walked into the house with beautiful flowers for his Mom.
My first day as a forty year old ended on a great note as these two nuts snuggled with me on a chilly and rainy Friday night while Mike and Kyle were out at football games.
I am not rich and famous by society standards but yesrerday I felt like royalty. Those around me made me feel so special. I was also blessed by my mission trip girls sending me sweet texts, and two preschoolers even sent me videos. Happiness is found in genuine friends, Jesus, handmade gfts and cards, date night with my soul mate, and my time with my family. I am blessed more than I ever deserve. I thank God for the forty years he has given me and I pray that He will give me forty more to serve Him.

Pardon me for being such a blog slacker. Busy is an understatement for our lives the last few weeks. It is has been all great stuff, but whew it has been hectic.
Another reason I have been a blog slacker is that I have been leading a women's bible study at church on Sunday evenings. I did this study this summer and loved it so much that I invited a few friends to do it with me. We have roughly 30 women that are participating in this study. If you get a chance do this study. It takes all those stories in the bible and shows you how they are tied together. Amazing!!
The study is wonderful and so is the fellowship with other women. To lead this study is way out of my comfort zone, but I felt that God was prodding me to offer it. We need to know God's word to know how awesome He is! Last week I was so blessed getting messages and texts from ladies commenting on the study and discussing it before we even met.
Thankfully the reason I have been a blog slacker is all for good reasons:) We have enjoyed our two Saturdays voluneering for Special Spectators, our kids activities are keeping us busy, and I am relishing time in God's word with some other awesome women. Life is busy, but life is good.
